UMKC Is Moving To Canvas

The University of Missouri-Kansas City is transitioning the Blackboard learning management system (LMS) to a new system, Canvas. A pilot group has been selected from amongst the schools and departments.

Faculty in the pilot will receive training and transition their courses to the Canvas LMS for the Spring 2018 semester. The pilot group will provide recommendations on how to improve UMKC’s transition to Canvas.
